Bulgaria’s sea capital, as Varna has been dubbed, is one of Forbes’ “Five underrated cities to visit across the Balkans".

“Though often overshadowed by the national capital of Sofia, Varna is equipped with one particularly enticing attribute for tourists—a coastline, to be precise. On a sunny day, the city’s lengthy white sand beach is the perfect spot for swimming and sunbathing, while the nearby Archaeological Museum Varna is home to Roman baths, antique jewelry, and one of the earth’s oldest known examples of gold treasure,” Forbes writes.

The other 4 underrated cities to visit in the Balkans are: Berat in Albania, Doboj in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Niš in Serbia, and Ohrid in North Macedonia.
